Pistol has absolutely the best trigger on a hi-power that I’ve ever felt (and I’ve owned several custom ones). High grip modification places the pistol lower in the hand than any other that I’ve had done. This is a very, very nice gun and I know that I will regret selling it but other ideas and projects beckon and I, unfortunately, am not able at this time to keep this pistol AND go into the other stuff that is waiting.
Feel free to e-mail me OR Ned Christiansen about the pistol. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org and Ned’s is email@example.com. It’s also no problem to answer questions by phone and you can get my phone number by e-mailing me. Please note that, as of today (10/28/04), Ned does not have access to his e-mail and will probably not be able to respond via that medium for several more days. You CAN reach him by phone by calling the number listed on his site.
Pistol will come with one full-capacity magazine.
Asking price is $2400 including shipping.
